You should read the Bible

 Columnist March 30 

On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal was compelled to issue an amusing, if embarrassing, correction after misquoting Israel’s prime minister the day before. “An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated Benjamin Netanyahu said Moses brought water from Iraq,” the Journal confessed. “He said the water was brought from a rock.”

In his speech, Netanyahu had referenced the Old Testament tale in which Moses strikes a rock with his staff to draw water for the Israelites, who were wandering the desert after their exodus from slavery in Egypt.

It’s doubtful that Moses made it across the Arabian Peninsula on foot and even less likely that he was able to tote a large quantity of water out of that rather arid region. But although one might be tempted to laugh off this misprint as either an isolated incident or the folly of godless coastal media elites — the original line had to have been seen and approved by at least three Journal staffers before being published — such religious illiteracy is far more widespread than that.

    I strongly encourage young Muslim and Christian to consider reading the Bible and The Quran.

    As Rasulullah (pbuh) believed and practiced some of Jesus teachings and loved all prophets. Q. 3;3. Jesus came to the earth NOT to destroy Torah, but to fulfill / correct it. Muhammad (saw) came to the earth NOT to destroy Torah and Injil, but to fulfill / correct them. Torah, Zabur, Injil and Quran are Islamic books from Allah.

    What is the benefitcial to read Bible? Prophet Affirm that as following:

    I wanted to get a better understanding about the Christian faith that impacts all facets of life in any Christian countries. I, therefore, started reading the Bible and read it many times and as well as the Quran.
    After reading both the Bible and the Quran, I was amazed by how much Christian and Muslim have in common. In fact, I would like to encourage Muslims to consider reading the Bible (Torah, Zabur and Injil ) as I did. And also I encourage Christians to read The Quran as well.

    In this Article, I would like to emphasize what Allah and Muhammad (saw)
    said about Christianity, Jesus as written in The Quran. We, Muslim should believe and love with all our heart, soul, and mind what Allah and Rasulullah saw revealed in the Quran.
    The First and Second commandment of Allah to Prophet Mose pbuh.
    “Love you God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul. Love your neighbor as you love your self”
    May Allah will guide and bless those who read this article to the true path of Islamic teaching.

    The Teaching about those who follow Jesus’ teaching will filled his heart with love and mercy.
    Old interpretation; Extremist Clerics never tell to their followers that following Jesus’ teaching, Allah will fill their heart with the grace, mercy and love of Allah. For they hate Christian and Jews as well.
    Allah commanded His people to love all people regardless his beliefs, race and gender.
    Then, in their wake, We followed them up with (others of) Our Messengers: We sent after them ‘Isa the son of Maryam, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him Love,or Compassion and Mercy. Q.57;27

    And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah.(taqwa) QS.5;(46).
    In other words, those who do not read and practice Jesus’ teaching will not get love, or compassion, mercy and guidance from Allah (swt). Their heart will be filled by satan, then they will do what satan ask them to do. Satan is against what Allah ask people to do. Satan wants people go to hell with him by doing violence, talking slander, backbiting and being rude to people.
    Extremist Muslims hate Christians, that is why Allah fill their heart with hatred and hostile toward Jews and Christians.
    These are some of Jesus’ teachings relating with “love”, All mankind should practice these verses from God.

    May God guide Muslim to the right path of Islam. Amdn

    All our love ❤️

    • Would be nice if the Christians would practice all that love you talk about, instead of exporting wars again and again …

      • Rafiq— we never give up to spread love to people, Muslim , Christian, Buddha and Jews. We should also advocate anti-War and violence—
        We promote pease, harmony, Tolerance and prosperity.
        Do you with me? Rafiq
        All❤️
